SHAPE SUN

I let Zorro do free cutting. He still needs a lot of work with it. While he did that I cut rectangles and triangles and punched out star.

He glues the rectangles and triangles around the outside and stars on the inside.

I let him glue googly eyes on and a mouth from yarn.




I love where he put the eyes. :)

**********************************
PINWHEEL PLAY
in place of sensory tub

I bought these pinwheels at the Dollar Tree. Zorro LOVES them! He blew on them and stuck them into foam. Took them outside and watched them spin in the wind.

Looks like great fun! I think it's so neat how you're doing themes that I think my kids are too young for, but you're doing them in such a great way for his age! You are very creative, girl!

It's Teaching Young Children, but I participate in Tot School with my other blog - Mighty Mouse. As always, you have awesome ideas, and you present them so well. I was surprised to see Zorro doing so well with beading - very impressive. I have to try those fine motor activities one of these days.
